We all know that college is expensive, there's no doubt about that. Buick, in conjunction with the General Motors Foundation is helping to ease that burden with the Buick Achievers Scholarship.The program rewards students across the country who excel in the classroom and the community, and lack the financial resources to attend college.
The program, in its second year, recently expanded to include current undergraduates as well as high school seniors. "Almost one half of college students drop out before completinig their education. Many cite the lack of financial resources as the priinciple reason for dropping out. By including current undergraduate students, the Buick Achievers program will enable many deserving students to complete their education" said Scholarship America SRVP Donald Lassere.
The program offers 100 $25,000.00/year scholarships which are renewable for up to 4 years, as well as 1,000 $1,000.00/year nonrenewable scholarships. The program also offers one $25,000.00/year scholarship for a five year engineering program.
We would LOVE to see someone from the Valley win one of these scholarships. If you or someone you know are interested in the program, please go to www.buickachievers.com to apply before February 29th,2012.
